Recipe by Nikki Kate

Nice big cookie with PB Cups on the top. What could go wrong.

Top Review by jetta_mel

the cookies had a great flavor and texture and were perfectly baked after 15 min. the only problem i had was the peanut butter cups on top. the first round they melted all over the top leaving melted chocolate pooling around the chunks of peanut butter. i tried putting them on closer to the end of baking and found that worked a little better (about one minute left). they all tasted great, just a little messier than i imagined.
